Though I suppose I should consider the recent and mysterious refinery explosion in Torrance is probably contributing to the issue out here. Funny, no workers hurt, no explanation but lucky for them its happening right around the time of the blend switch when prices were due to rise anyway. And no, my tin foil hat is not very warm this time of year.
I was visiting my cousin at his 7-11 store today and as his rep was leaving she told him to raise the prices .20 a gallon. Went from $2.25 to $2.45. The low price was nice while it lasted. I fuel at Costco, or Sam's Club but have not checked prices.
Gas prices here in central CA have gone up $.70/gal in the past two weeks. It went up $.20/gal last night here.
This will probably get blamed on the refinery explosion last week in the Los Angeles area.
Another indicator is the Baltic Dry Index. The BDI tracks dry shipping worldwide. It is at its lowest level since it was incepted back in 1986. When it spikes lower it is a primary indicator of weak demand for most everything, and reduced manufacturing output. That translates into less demand for energy at all levels.
